NERC Knowledge Exchange Fellowship

Prize: Fellowship awarded competitively


NERC Knowledge Exchange Fellowship (one of two awarded in 2012). I work with national stakeholder forums (e.g. England and Wales Wildfire Forum) and researchers nationally to improve wildfire management in the UK through knowledge exchange. My 'Knowledge for Wildfire' project aims are to: generate impact from existing NERC-funded research; join up cross-sector and cross-disciplinary initiatives on wildfire risk management; and facilitate new partnerships for co-produced research, especially on spatial analysis and the environmental effects of fire. Stakeholders include; Fire and Rescue Services, Chief Fire Officers Association, Cabinet Office Civil Contingency Secretariat, DCLG, Defra agencies, and the land management community.
